Diss Express 22 May 1908 On Saturday, at Framlingham Petty Sessiosn.
Charles Wilson Ransome, farmer, Brandeston, was charged with assaulting Henry Townsend, a boy, and Charles Baxter, horseman, both in his employ. It was alleged that defendant struck the lad with a stick and whip, and rolled him over into a clover layer, and with regard to the horseman it was stated that defendant struck him on the ribs, shoulder, and legs with the whip. – Defendant denied using a whip, and said he was annoyed by the two defendants ill-treating a colt. – In the first case defendant was fined 5/-, and 19/8 costs, and in the second 5/-, and 10/10 costs – total £2/0/6; in default, 14 days with hard labour.
Framlingham Weekly News 26 Nov 1910 Elizabeth Mace, wife of Jas. Mace, was charged by Florence Baxter, wife of Charles Baxter, of Earl Soham, with assaulting her. – the parties are neighbours, and complainant said she was walking along the Brandeston road to meet her child when the defendant came up to her, knocked her down, and pulled her hair; she also threw stones at her, and called her wicked names. – Defendant said the row between them commenced earlier in the day, when complainant called her everything she could think of, and what defendant did was in self-defence. – The case was dismissed, each party being ordered to pay their own costs.
Framlingham Weekly News 18 Feb 1911 A Mother Neglects her children –
Charles Baxter, labourer, Earl Soham, and Florence Baxter, his wife, were summoned for wilfully neglecting their five children. Mr. A. S. Leighton (Messrs. Leighton and Pretty, Ipswich) prosecuted on behalf of the N.S.P.C.C. – Inspector Weatherden, N.S.P.C.C., said he had had the children under his observation for some time. On one of his visits he found one of the children had been scalded, and the female defendant told him she left the child downstairs, and on her return found it had upset a saucepan of boiling milk. The house was in a most filthy state; a few rags on the children’s bed served for bed linen, and the only clean thing he saw was a quilt on the parent’s bed. The woman said the Rector’s wife had lent them it. She admitted her husband gave her 12s per week regularly. Witness saw the man, who said he could not do more for the children as he was out at work all day. – Sarah Watson, a neighbour, said she went in directly she heard one of the children was scalded, and advised the mother to send for the doctor. The child was scalded on the neck and back. Mrs. Baxter became ill a short time after, and witness looked after her and tidied up the house, which was in a terribly filthy state. She enquired of the mother how the child was going on, and was told it was doing splendidly. When she saw the child, however, it was still shockingly blistered, and the other children were in a filthy and verminous state. They were poorly clad, and there was no food or firing in the house. – Henry J. M. Rogers, Relieving Officer, said by order of the Guardians he removed the five children to the Workhouse. The house was very filthy, and quite unfit for human habitation. The children showed unmistakable signs of neglect. The only bedding on the children’s bed was an old piece of carpet. Defendants had never applied to him for relief. – Dr. J. C. Keer, Medical officer of Health, who examined the children after their admission to the Workhouse, referred to their dirty condition, adding that they must have suffered terribly from neglect, especially the one which had been scalded, the neck and back being covered with ulcers. – Both defendants pleaded guilty. The male defendant declined to make any statement. Mrs. Baxter denied that the witness Watson had cleaned her house: she got up one morning early and did it herself. Her home was now perfectly clean; she now had clean linen for the beds and for the children to wear and the home was now ready for them to return. The Magistrates retired, and on their return the Chairman said it was one of the worst cases ever brought before a Court. There were no extenuating circumstances and they decided to send the woman to two months’ hard labour. They blamed the man very much, but they would not imprison him. He would be bound over in £5 for twelve months, and would have to pay the costs, 12s.
